The commentator for the Nishikori match is really annoying
Nice match! The best five setter so far.
Tipsy vs Almagro should be a good one. Tipsy has to be a big favourite.
Tipsy coming from two consecutive five setters.
The ozzie crowd is getting more like the ny crowd and not in a good way. They are way too partizan.
Still think he's favourite.
Yes but not a huge one. Big match for the both of them i think
Morning joeri. You're right, maybe I exaggerated, Vegas actually has this as more or less a 50/50.
That said, I do actually think Tipsy will win in straights.
Djokovic - Wawrinka
Anderson - Berdych
Ferrer - Nishikori
Almagro - Tipsarevic
All matches that I will HAVE to watch. I guess I'll just have to learn to live without sleeping.
Tipsy in straights? He needed 5 to go past Lacko and Benneteau. I think 50/50 is about right. I'd give a slight edge to Tipsarevic but wouldn't be surprised to see Almagro win.
Yes all great and interesting. Can see them all being competitive if great Stan shows up. If meh Stan shows up That one is least interesting.
What makes berdych vs anderson interesting? Anderson is the most boring player on tour besides Berdych always gives him a beatdown even when he is not in form and he is in form now.
that is actually your opinion not his i find anderson as a baseliner not an isner
The GOAT plays tonight everybody.
Not too excited about many of the matches today. Federer vs. Tomic should be fun, but I just can't stay up for those 7pm Australian time starts! The other half of the draw seems to be putting together some more interesting match-ups so far.
Imo, raonic-Kohl and Simon-monfils are interesting imo.
I would definitely watch the Simon-Monfils match, but those evening matches don't start until something like 3 am here Cilic-Seppi could be interesting, and it's an early start so that will probably be my Friday night entertainment.
What is interesting to you apart from Djokovic and Murray getting their asses whooped and Federer winning AO?
Yes, that is my opinion.
He makes watching murray seem entertaining somehow.
Murray losing maybe.
I am a fan of nole actually and thats del po in my avvy not federer.
Feds is playing night for 2nd time now - seems a bit of an advantage given how much of a factor people seem to be saying heat is?
Shame Monfils and Simon is the other night game (when we are waking up in the UK), rather than Murray, JMdP or Tsonga.
I have no interest in Simon/LeMonf.
Ah ok I didn't realise.
Mostly I'm looking forward to some great matches regardless, and Murray winning would be a bonus.
I find if you wish for a player to lose it can spoil your enjoyment of the tennis especially if you dislike players like the Murray's of the world who win most of their matches.
If Murray wins this AO are you going to let that spoil your enjoyment of the whole tournament? Think about it? Just appreciate the tennis and the fantastic players on show no matter who wins.
Looking forward to Djoko Wawrinka which could be a cracker and Fed Tomic.
Possible Del Po Murray match could be a classic then the meeting of them with prob Federer and lots of other goodies.
Lots to look forward to.
Good post fedex. lots to look forward to.
I wont let murray winning spoil my enjoyment if thats what you think but i will be disappointed. Its just banter alot of what is said on here I think some fans dont see it like that and take it too seriously and make loads of pro or anti threads .
Scheduling is a bit better today but I still think they're stacking the more interesting men's matches all together. Seems like they're all slated to begin around 11pm for us on the US east coast. I'm also slightly interested in Monfils vs Simon for some reason... I don't know why, because when I remember their match here from a few years ago it was one of the most boring matches I've ever seen.
Hopefully Monfils doesn't show up today and try to out push Simon. He needs to look at James Blake and Petros Sampras and how they used their athleticism and speed to attack rather than make crazy circus shots.
Good on you. So many exciting matches coming up with great players, on form, it's like tennis heaven.
I'm a bit confused because I'd like Del Po, Federer and Murray to win but they all have to meet before the final.
Obviously Murray trumps all.
Outpush Simon? This tournament needs to finish in a week....
Nobody can "outpush" Simon. It's a physical impossibility
Simon is the huge favorite against Monfils. He's very patient and he is much more consistent.
Like I said monfils is getting better every match. The way he is playing is much more offensive than before. If his serve is on monfils will win100%.
I know monfils will win this match 100%.
As far as sets it could be 3 but knowing monfils it will be at least 4.
Rod, it's a 150 percent guarantee Monfils loses this match
He can play as good as he wants, then brain goes out to lunch.
Your maybe right I'm prolly biased because I been following monfils sense 04, and the fact if he put his game together and had the right mindset he could crush people.
I'm problaly looking at the would ifs more than looking at reality.
I still think he has a very large chance, I'm confident he'll win still. Lol
He could be something special if he decided to grow up.
He already is something special, he got to 7 in the world.
Most athletic player on tour.
No no no, that doesn't even scratch the surface of where he could go.
part of me doesn't want monfils to ever change... part of me worried about his health if he carries on like this. i want him to be on tour for as long as he loves teh game.
Thanks for stating the well known lol.
Obviously man, your telling someone who played professional tennis lol.
He's still special if he retired to today without reaching his potential.
And you are talking to someone who admits he's watched for near thirty years, and played for one. I'm no pro, but I just see something in him that could be that much more if he didn't screw around like an idiot.
guys... delpotro is stuggling to hold his serve 1-4 against the french boy
I think they played a match not too long ago where Chardy was on a little streak and started well against Delpo, but Delpo took it back and won. not too worried
Yep, and cilic is embarrassing himself by struggling against seppi early on.
Gasquet vs. Dodig is actually teh match to watch at the moment. A set each and battling fiercely in the third.
I'm focusing on this until further notice.
Once again stating the obvious .
It's cool though, who is your fav player
All of the Top 5, and Nishikori, and becoming a fan of Steve Johnson and Jerzy Janowicz.
But I like David Ferrer and Roger Federer in particular.
Interesting I must say
...Cilic just lost to Seppi. What?
Finally the tournament is starting to pick up. Good day of tennis today.
So instead of Cilic/Del Potro it's Seppi/Chardy
What the heck is going on?
A tough Slam draw for Murray is never actually a tough Slam draw for Murray :wink:
Disagree. I thought it was a terrible day with Seppi and Chardy winning.
